Homework 1 is posted.  Due 1/25/2011.

If you have free time, you should listen to Dan Bernstein Talk about securing the Internet:  27C3 Talk by Dan Bernstein: High-speed high-security cryptography: encrypting and authenticating the whole Internet. The talk was very interesting.  He talks about DNSSEC, why it is broken, how to break it, and why its is not feasible.  He then goes on to introduce his research and explains how encrypting almost all communication between a server and a client is feasible.  I enjoyed the talk.  Also, ShmooCon is happening next weekend (Jan 28- 30), and they have talks streaming live.  There was someone in class who asked  who got payed to break stuff.  This is a good opportunity to find out who, why, and how.  The Shmoo Group has not posted the live video details, but I imagine they will show up here when they are made public: ShmooNews.
